The Networkrecorder in 0.26 should support everything from 0.25 + HLS.

I think on master UDP/RTP (with RTSP) is working right now. The HLS
streaming needs to be hooked up to the new Networkrecorder (missing
new glue code). I can't find a reference to RTSP with TCP (which I was
using to feed on demand from VLM to the Networkrecorder)

Hooking up the new MythMusic Shoutcast reader to a MPEG-TS wrapper to
the NetworkRecorder would be a nice little project leaving only the more
foreign (aka. not even close to MPEG codecs) streams to be adapted.
(Basically wrapping PES into TS, maybe )

Is your feed translation program available somewhere? Does it inject
EIT, too? I'd be interested in that from the guide provider and MythTV
EIT scanner side. ;)
